HELLO FORKERS!

Nice grasses DD. .....grasses are so versatile. Currently I offen take my dog where masses of whispering miscanthus grasses are planted.  The sound is magical.  So sound, tactility (?) colour, movement and height......why not grow them?

Hey!  Wots all this ere then about me being older Orchid lady?    Just because Im so wise, beautiful, charming, modest  and ......er, vain.....doesn't mean its coincided with age.

Oooooooooo!  Who will win the prize? 

red robin photinia fraaseri

Photinias are odd fellows.  Loads of frustrated posts about them.

Anyway, no I don't,think it will regrow Ian.  Because it is such a temperamental shrub some will post in with different opinion.  However, I feel ??ou will simply allow an ugly stump to spoil your garden by not getting rid ASAP.

For me, I,couldn't wait to get rid of mine.  Had 2 red robins and neither recovered from being cut back into old wood.

Yes nut.  Seed is cheap as chips and easy to germinate.

Blowing in the wind it looks so good.

Well,if it's a pampas it will have sharp leaf edges...reason why I dug  mine out.

Lily Pilly, yes I too have gigantea and love it.  Been flowering for months ....prob since May.  No sign of flagging and unaffected by wind or rain 

Help please.

Lily, lily, lily.  

Clues?  Picture?  

Please help, have I caused irreversible damage and if so what can I do?

Consider too pittosporum.  Garnettii is a lovely grey variegafed sort and is amenable to pruning.  Colour would look very good there Ian.  Bonus of quick growth too and is hardier than many think 

Best hemerocallis

You like hemerocallis Mark?  

Are there other variegated varieties?

  1. It looks like a panicum ....heavy metal?    However my I'd skills here are not great.  Somewhat better in real life though 

If its a panicum.....and for sure its not gigantea ........look out for little button flower now forming af the tips.
